Headword: *tu/la
Adler number: tau,1150
Translated headword: callus; bolt
Vetting Status: high
[tu/la,] and [sc. also attested is] tu/los as a masculine, [sc. meaning] the callused part of the shoulder and compacted part of the flesh, such as often happens to the shoulder in those bearing burdens, as a result of constantly carrying something. Aristophanes in Acharnians [writes]: "let Heracles be witness, I am badly tired with my callus." And Teleclides mentioned a callus of the throat.[1]
Polybius [writes]: "[...] with the rock presenting difficult conditions, because of the necessity to make a piercing in it for the bolts holding the pipe being deployed."[2]
